Did you already screencap the Mirror of Galadriel scene, some time ago? I can't remember. I love that scene with the passion of a thousand suns. It's right up there in my list of Very Favourite Scenes from the trilogy. I love it in the book, with Sam there. But I also love love love the Movie Mirror. Frodo looks absolutely gorgeous, as does Gladys (I love calling her Gladys. I began calling her that in the days of the pre-movie discussion at Imladris). And Howard Shore's score in that scene is. To. Die. For.

This sequence is pretty good too. :p

My favourite cap of Frodo from this particular sequence is the one right at the top. I love his expression. And he looks, uh, MANLY. Very intent and focused ... slightly apprehensive, but not afraid ... expectant ...

I like what you've done with that screencap of Galadriel descending, bathed in celestial light, so it would seem. Truly goddess-like.

Oh man, I must watch these movies again sometime ...

Oh, I didn't do anything to the Galadriel cap. I sharpened it a tiny bit, but that's all. That's all I basically did to the theatrical version caps -- a little more brightening on the Frodo caps, perhaps. Gladys is just *that* goddessy!

Yeah, I love the Mirror scene, too, starting with the side shot of Galadriel walking through the grass like a living, breathing Alan Lee illustration. But, no, I've never capped Frodo in it. I felt that there were already a million caps of that scene, not to mention loads of lovely drawings made from them (Whiteling did a beaut).

I love the look on his face in the first shot, too. To me it looks like he's just taken a big drag of -- something -- letting it expand his lungs before the exhale, feeling relieved of all worry and trepidation.
